78. Lets just go through this one more time...

Several countries such as Iraq and Morocco, passed laws aiming at *preventing* Jewish emigration.

Is that sinking in? Do I need to spell that out any clearer? Those countries were trying to *prevent* Jews from leaving. Otherwise, why would they have passed those laws?

Yes, there was violence, murders, unrest, and bombings. It is possible that some of the bombings were orchestrated by Zionists. At any rate, there is absolutely no shred of evidence to suggest that the Iraqi government was behind the bombings. At any rate, do you really think that the same people who bombed the King David Hotel, assassinated a UN peace mediator, and recruited young Egyptian Jews to bomb targets in Egypt (the Lavon affair), would have any great reservations about bombing targets in Iraq?

Do a little reading. There was a pan-Arab effort to rid every Arab country of Jews, and this began long before the state of Israel even came into existence.

Here's a couple of questions for you - which was the only country in the world in the 1920s to have a senior cabinet minister who was Jewish? And which major capital city had the highest population of Jews, per capita?

And here are the answers, because frankly I don't expect you to know them: Iraq, whose first finance minister was Jewish, as well as the junior Minister of Justice who was Jewish as well. And Baghdad, whose population was 40% Jewish at the time.

And in relation to your "do a little reading" jibe, it seems to me to be quite apparent at this point in time which one of us is better read.
